I’m Loving It

I don’t usually write posts like this – but I wanted to share the products I’m loving these days…

First, on our way to Dubai in July, I was browsing through the Duty Free catalogue and came across this…

Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour Balm

Tinted lip balms are my new thing.  I don’t tend to wear make-up during the day, so these would be perfect for those days when you have to dress up a little.  They came in a pack of three, which was perfect.  And yes, the fact that they’re called ‘Chubby Sticks’ did make me giggle.

During the holiday, I went into Sephora – I love this store.  I could buy millions of things in there, but manage to restrain myself.  I went in with the intention of buying more Chubby Sticks.

I found them and bought two more.  What I didn’t realise was that they were Chubby Sticks Intense.

This actually worked out well.  This meant I could use them when I went out in the evening (and wearing more make up), as the colours were more…  Well, intense!

They moisutrise well and are long-lasting.

I’m going to buy more next time I travel!

I usually use Palmer’s Cocoa Butter as a full-body moisturiser.  I ran out months ago and have just been making do with random moisturisers – none of which did the trick.

I borrowed my sister’s Vitamin E Body Butter from The Body Shop while I was in Dubai and loved it.  So much so that I bought my own before leaving.

It leaves my skin SO soft and smooth, it’s amazing.  The only thing I don’t like is the fact that it’s in a tub.  I’d much prefer it if it were in a squeezy tube or bottle.

When I went into The Body Shop to buy the Body Butter, I saw their Almond Hand & Nail Cream.  I picked that up too.

The thing with me is that I buy products like this *remembers Benefit eye cream from two years ago* and then don’t use them regularly (or at all).  I can honestly say (hand on heart) that I use this hand cream at least twice a day.  It is brilliant!  It keeps my hands soft and moisturised.  I can’t tell you if it makes any difference to my nails as I’ve started biting them again (I know!).

So…  If you’re going out shopping and want to treat yourself – buy any of the above products.  You won’t regret it!
